As always, SXSW was a success for SAGIndie. There’s something about being in Austin during March that makes for a very rewarding experience, both personally and professionally. The excitement and genuine love for film is so rampant that you never want it to end. This festival is quickly becoming one of my favorites and I highly suggest attending.

Besides seeing a couple amazing films (KICK-ASS and MICMACS), we were an exhibitor during the three-day trade show portion and had the chance to chat with a number of interesting filmmakers and actors. SAGIndie National Director, Darrien Gipson, took part in a “Meet the Guilds” panel that was very well attended and we finished out the week by co-hosting an amazing party with the WGA.

See below for some fun photos from the trip.


One of the best festival t-shirts I’ve seen. I definitely picked one up.


Registration was MUCH easier in 2010. Every year SXSW gets better at running their show.


Our busy booth. Co-ran with our great friends at SAG New Media.


This guy was our first GOWALLA challenge winner. He took home a bunch of goodies.

Cheeseburger flavored Doritos. Best or worst idea ever?
